Teacup Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to another fabulous Teacup Tuesday hosted by Thank you so much Martha for hosting this for us! Today, I would like to share with you my little set of teapot salt and pepper shakers. You can click on the pictures to make them bigger. The tops are silver plate, and the bottoms are clear glass. These weren't very expensive, but I just fell in love with them because they are so cute. The vase I am using for these tiny roses, is actually a toothpick holder I picked up at Goodwill. The roses are so adorable, and they seem to be kind of a wild rose. I found them by a building near my home. The little buds are perfect for crafting. This teacup has the sweetest little pink roses on it. Do you see a pattern here? I just love pink roses!! It has a name on the bottom I can't quite make out, and it also says Bavaria, Germany. The little rose is also one from this bush.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit Martha for more pretty tea things that others are sharing.

Teacup Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to our Teacup Party, hosted by Martha of Thank you Martha for hosting this fun party for us! Here is some of my collection of teacups under one of my favorite cloches! I found this at Home Goods. I love it on this pretty pink cake/cookie stand. You can click on any picture to make it larger. The first teacup is from Germany, I can't make out the name. The second is Royal Albert, and the third is chintz, from Royal Winton. In this picture is some of my vintage linens and laces I displayed in this pretty rack. The cherub holder I found at an antique shop, and it says Relpo on the bottom with a number. I love it's soft creamy white color.

Here is my Lady Carlyle cup from Royal Albert. I just love this cup. I found a whole set of cups, saucers, and dinner plates at Home Goods. The pretty rose on the saucer I made from wired ribbon. I plan on using them on some teacup pincushions in the future. The beautiful white hankie says Mother on it, and was a gift from daughter for Mother's Day, along with the little dish and tiny spoon beside it. It is from Limoges, and I thought it would be perfect for some sweet and low. The little spoon with the teacup on it, I purchased from e-bay.

I just love this little frozen charlotte doll. I had seen them around blogland, and did some searching on e-bay, and finally found one. She is sitting in this pretty teacup from Royal Albert called "Serena".

I almost flipped when I found these nylon gloves in an antique shop for $6. The softest shade of pink, and perfect to wear to a tea party.

Please help yourself to a little chenile cupcake when you leave. They are adorable, and have no calories! Thank you so much for visiting, and please check out the other participants for more pretty tea things.

Vintage Things Thursday

Hello, and welcome to another fabulous Vintage Things Thursday, hosted by Suzanne of thanks Suzanne for hosting this for us! This doll was given to me by my dear mother-in-law many yrs ago. She started collecting all kinds of dolls back in the 1960's - 70's. This is what started my collection of dolls, and my love for pretty Victorian things, including vintage laces, and vintage baby dresses. (click on pictures to enlarge)

She is from 1910, and I just love her little porcelain face. The rest of her body is a composition material. I can't imagine little children playing with this. The eyes are glass, open and close, and are expensive to fix, should they fall back in her head. This happened earlier this year, when the carriage I had her sitting in, toppled over. They have to soak off the wig to get inside the head, and reattach them. According to some articles I have read on the internet, these dolls were only owned by richer families, and only played with on Sunday's with the mother present.

thanks for stopping by for a visit, and please visit the other participants to see their vintage things too.
